Samsung Mass Produces 16Gb NAND Flash Memory

Samsung 51Nm NAND Flash Memory Chip

Samsung has begun mass producing 16Gb (gigabit) NAND flash chips, the highest capacity memory chips now available. The company said it will fabricate the devices in 51 nanometers (nm) process technology.

Samsung said the 51nm NAND flash chips can be produced 60 percent more efficiently than those produced with 60nm process technology. The company achieved this new migration milestone eight months after announcing production of its 60nm 8Gb NAND flash last August.

The new 16Gb chip which uses a multi-level cell (MLC) structure can facilitate capacity expansion by offering 16 gigabytes (GB) of memory in a single memory card. By applying the new process technology, Samsung claims to have accelerated the chip’s read and write speeds by approximately 80 percent over current MLC data processing speeds.
